it comes to human rights, civil rights, and equality, i don't believe we should have the left versus right. these are moral issues. these are issues that go to the heart of what human beings, who we are and what we should be about not toward the partisan politics but like everything else it's going to get played out in a partisan atmosphere but i would hope we respect the individual people who through no fault of their own just are trying to live their lives and not be tortured or be subjected to these type of conversion therapies. >> donna and ari flish, thanks very much. just ahead, did the u.s. secret service accidently fire a weapon near iran's president when he was in new york? and why would iran keep quiet about something like that? stand by. if youthen this willbrids arbe a nice surprise. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max come. c-max go. c-max give a ride to everyone it knows. c max has more passenger volume than competitor prius v and we haven't even mentioned... c-max also gets better mpg. say hi to the super fuel efficient ford c-max hybrid.

working closely with more of the civil rights organizations that have sued. this particular case is, actually, it has been brought by native american tribes, and the reason for that, arizona once again being an outlier in the name supposedly of trying to deny undocumented immigrants from registering to vote which is a nonissue because most undocumented immigrants would not dare to vote. they're afraid to even call the police for a crime. what's happened since 2004 when this law went into effect, over 30,000 citizens have been denied the ability to register to vote or to show when they were at the polls were not allowed to vote. so that is what the lawsuit is about. it's whether the state of arizona can have different requirements than the national voter registration act. >> host: an important issue for illegal immigrants. we actually want to hear from them today, this morning during this segment. if you're an illegal immigrant and you want to call in and give your comments or thoughts on this subject, call us at 202 -- a special line, 585-3883. we can talk about the supreme court de

with the criminal case. he didn't take the stand. he asserted his right to remain silent. and now there is civil litigation pending, involving especially victim number two who you heard talked about in that clip. in a sense by testifying in this way, communicating through the media, he gets to participate, dump evidence into the court of public opinion which will have some effect on the civil proceedings, possibly even influence the appellate court though i doubt it. the bottom line is he gets to give his statement without subjecting himself to a deposition or testimony under oath in a court of law. what a creep. that guy has no guts. this is the coward's way, coward's way to seek justice. i don't think it's going to help at all. >> ann, let me ask you about this victim at the center, victim number two. the person who did the three hour interview with sandusky, it was a long interview, he claims that there were events in 2011 that shed new light on the case altogether. especially when it comes to victim two this was the boy in the shower with sandusky. so here's what ziegler claims victim two ha
